The Sweetest Sound


I heard the most amazing sound yesterday -- a heartbeat. I went to doctor for a check up, not knowing what to expect this time. The doctor said, "okay, let's take a listen to the heart." I hopped up on the little table wondering why she wanted to listen to my heart. It's obviously working. She looked a little puzzled when I didn't lie down. I stretched out on the table but didn't even consider the importance of what was happening. I was overwhelmed when I heard that thump-thump -- our child's heartbeat (160 bpm). It was such a sweet sound. 

Unfortunately, CJay didn't go with me. He's still pretty disappointed that he missed it, but we had no idea what this appointment would be like. I have a feeling he won't be missing any more doctor visits.
